all this pissin' back n forth here....but I'm with Urban....I don't even feel 2 beers unless I slam 'em, but I drink a moderate amount often and weigh 220. Now, do I intentionally ride somewhere to drink? No. But if I stop off at someone's house for a quick visit and they offer me a beer, I don't even flinch at the thought. To each their own though.

I went on an MH ride many years ago in a large group of about 50+ motorcyclists and we ended up at The Spot for some yumz One of the riders bought a bucket of beer bottles...a WHOLE BUCKET...and offered it to everyone on the ride. I think only 1 person drank with him...everyone else was like, really? This was just after the death of either Yankee, Coach or Z.

We already have enough to deal with in Houston - distracted people, cops, road debris...alcohol and riding under the influence is COMPLETELY avoidable. In my eyes, drinking and riding is just as dumb as riding without a helmet.

Bingo. Especially if it was hours later - he could easily say he had started drinking after the accident.

Why wheelie on open backroad? It increases your odds of a mistake...plenty still do it. There are responsible people still left in this world. 2 beers does not make smart people feel invisible. 2 beers does not impair my ability to comprehend that I have a wife and kid at home that I must go home to. Different strokes for different folks.

I'm pretty sure the huge factor here is the fact that he left the scene. Had he not, might be a different story being read.

If the passenger gets on don't they assume the risk ? Give it she is a willing participant in the activities(racing, riding wheelies). A sunday cruise with two beers in me and I go to prison is not right. My said if she dies in a forbid bike wreck she wants me raising the kids not in prison.

There's no way out for you on this, just ask Jack Kevorkian.

That's BS on one level tho. I bar hop with friends n family and happens sometimes. My wife is willingly getting on. She knows the risk and accepts the consequences. Are we making the best decisions, maybe not but were grown folk.
